adapted by Carrie Forbes from Gluten Free Day's Quinoa Pizza

Ingredients:

3/4 cup quinoa flour

1/4 cup teff flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon rapid rise or bread machine yeast

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 cup warm water (+ additional if necessary)

1 tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a pizza pan or cookie sheet. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together quinoa flour, teff flour, salt, yeast, and sugar. Add in warm water and stir together with a fork. Stir into a ball of dough. If a half cup of water is not enough to create a stiff ball of dough, add 1 tbsp. at a time until you have a stiff ball of dough. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel and allow to rest for 10 minutes. Prepare topping while dough is resting. Pour 1 tbsp. olive oil onto the parchment paper and spread over paper into about a 12" circle. Place ball of dough onto the oiled parchment paper. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the ball of dough and pat out into about a 12" circle as seen in pictures above. Place pizza crust into the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven. Add desired toppings and bake for an additional 10 minutes until toppings are heated through and cheese or cheese substitute is melted.
